Plastic free month
July has been declared the global month without plastic. Plastics have a long life and therefore take a long time to decompose in nature. The enormous amount of waste occurring all over the world, including the oceans, is a big problem. However, the problem with plastics is much bigger - tiny particles of disintegrating plastic - so-called microplastics can be found absolutely everywhere today - in soil, water and in the bodies of animals and people.
